Samsung Galaxy A: Engaging Millennials through Experiential Marketing
- Cities & Municipalities
- Facial Recognition
Samsung was set to launch the new Galaxy A, a handset series designed with entertaining features and a modern, stylish design, aimed at attracting millennials. The challenge was to effectively communicate these features to the target audience in a way that would make the A3 and A5 models desirable objects for them. Traditional marketing strategies might not have been effective enough to capture the attention of millennials, a demographic known for its tech-savviness and desire for unique experiences. Therefore, Samsung needed a unique and engaging approach to introduce the new Galaxy A series to this demographic in Mexico City.
About The Customer
The customer in this case study is Samsung, a multinational conglomerate headquartered in South Korea. Samsung is known worldwide for its wide range of products, including smartphones, home appliances, and electronics. In this particular case, Samsung was launching the new Galaxy A series, a range of smartphones designed with entertaining features and a modern, stylish design. The target audience for these new handsets was millennials, a demographic known for its tech-savviness and desire for unique experiences. Samsung aimed to make the A3 and A5 models desirable objects for this demographic.
Samsung decided to take an experiential marketing approach to introduce the new Galaxy A series to millennials. They organized an exclusive music event called the 'Face Party' in collaboration with MTV. The event featured a DJ Set by Capital Cities featuring Sebu, one of the hottest clubs in Mexico. To allow the attendees to experience the features of the new Galaxy A series, Samsung built an animated-gif photo booth made entirely out of A5 handsets. This allowed the attendees to test and play with the Galaxy products, experiencing their features firsthand in a fun and engaging setting. The event was promoted through digital platforms and services, and PR & Influencer specialisms were involved to ensure maximum reach and impact.

Turning A Stadium Into A Smart Building
Honeywell created what it called the “intelligent system” for the National Stadium in Beijing, China, turning the venue for the opening and closing events at the 2008 Summer Olympics into a “smart building.” Designed by highly controversial artist Ai Weiwei, the “Bird’s Nest” remains one of the most impressive feats of stadium architecture in the world. The 250,000 square meter structure housed more than 100,000 athletes and spectators at a time. To accommodate such capacity, China turned to Honeywell’s EBI Integrated Building Management System to create an integrated “intelligent system” for improved building security, safety and energy efficiency.

Buoy Status Monitoring with LoRa
The Netherlands are well-known for their inland waterways, canals, sluices and of course port activities. The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure indicates that there are thousands of buoys and fixed items in and near water environments that would profit from IoT monitoring. One of the problems with buoys for example, is that they get hit by ships and the anchor cable breaks. Without connectivity, it takes quite some time to find out that something has happened with that buoy. Not to mention the costs of renting a boat to go to the buoy to fix it. Another important issue, is that there is no real-time monitoring of the buoys at this moment. Only by physically visiting the object on the water, one gains insight in its status.
Barcelona Case Study
Barcelona’s heavy traffic and its associated high levels of pollution were the primary factors that motivated some companies and universities to work on strategies for improving traffic in the city centre. Bitcarrier is one of the technologies involved in the In4Mo Project, whose main objective is to develop the applications that form the core of smart mobility, one of the fundamental pillars of the smart city concept.
China Mobile Smart Parking
Smart Parking, powered by NB-IoT technology, is making it easier for drivers to find free parking spots. Cities can better manage their parking assets and maximize the revenue available to them as a result. Drivers searching for parking create congestion and pollution by circling and hunting for available parking. Smart Parking services are able to significantly ease these problems by guiding a driver directly to a parking space.
